Committee Insights: NCIA Mythbusters – Is Cannabis Safer Than Alcohol?

NCIA’s #IndustryEssentials webinar series is our premier digital educational series featuring a variety of interactive programs allowing us to provide you timely, engaging and essential education when you need it most. The NCIA Committee Insights series showcases content produced in partnership with one of our 15 member-led committees.

It is estimated that more than 140,000 people die from alcohol-related causes annually, making alcohol the fourth-leading preventable cause of death in the United States. How does cannabis compare? Find out in this special edition of Mythbusters brought to you by members of NCIA’s Scientific Advisory Committee and State Regulatory Committee. As more and more states move towards adult use, business owners must learn about safe access best practices and ways to reduce harm when it comes to their consumers.

Learning Objectives

• Learn what a contraindication is

• Learn which physiological and mental health conditions should avoid THC and CBD
